Minor Hurlers show great character to earn draw

A good draw for our minor hurlers on last Sunday morning, 14th July. The game was played at home in Marlay. The game was nip and tuck the whole way through and could have went either way. The lads showed great character and dug in during the second half to secure a draw with a point in the last 30 seconds of the game.

Full Time Score BSJ 0-14 (14), Sylvesters 1-11 (14)

This draw consolidates our current 3rd place in the league

Next Game Wednesday 17th July at 7.30 away to Clontarf.

A mixed weekend for Adult Football. Our Seniors were beaten by the narrowest of margins against Na Fianna . We were down to 13 players for the most part of the game but despite a massive effort having come back from 4 points down in the last five minutes to draw level Na Fianna got the last score of the game in time added on. The Jun A team were beaten by a strong Kilmacud Crokes team while our Jun B team played out an exciting draw against Naomh Barróg. Our Jun C team had an excellent win against Shankill to go joint second in Div 11 South.

This leaves them on 8pts only needing one more result to retain Senior 1 status. Big week for Ian Ó Hehir who starred for the Dublin u/20 on Wednesday and BSJ Seniors on Saturday.
